Lamentations 3:23 ” Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning. Great is Your faithfulness.”

There’s only a few more days left in 2022, and your mind may be filled with regrets of all the unfulfilled promises you made to yourself this time last year. Promises of losing weight, eating healthier, or exercising more…or it might have been to stop smoking, or drinking alcohol, or seeking treatment for substance abuse. You might have promised yourself that you were not going allow that certain family member to push your buttons, or that you’d forgive others more. Then again, your pledge might have been to God Himself…vows for getting back into the Word daily & praying more. But regrets can’t change the past, and all our remorse for not accomplishing what we set out to do only makes us feel sorry for ourselves. So instead, we need to have a conversation…with ourselves & God…a poignant heart-to-heart, filled with truth, accountability, repentance, & a change in attitude. This wonderful Scripture in Lamentations shows us God’s unending compassion towards us that will never be consumed by His wrath. Or as Psalm 30:5 says, “For His anger is but for a moment, and His favor is for a lifetime.” Regrets don’t change anything…only repentance can.
